game and it inspired a new generation of players. lindsey vanas brought her three girls, all soccer players. >> she goes after it. i want my girls to be like that. >> reporter: wambach didn't score and the u.s. lost, but it didn't matter. >> my next chapter is going to be even brighter and more fulfilling and more passionate than even this is. >> reporter: as she walked off the field for the final time this sports legend hoped that somewhere in the stands the next abby wambach was watching. >> watch out u bourbon street! oh, my god! >> thank you, abby! >> reporter: for "cbs this morning," mark strassmann, new orleans. >> congratulations to her and the u.s. women's soccer team and how much she has done i think, for young girls and women across america who want to grow up and be abby wambach. >> she said her bottom just knows when it knows and she just wanted to celebrate with her

navy defended the handling of the case rhode island. spain' prime minister was punched in the face. in the area where he grew up he was campaigning. the stunt surprised the prime minister and leaves bright red marks on his left cheek. he later tweeted he is okay. his attacker is identified as a 17-year-old teenager who has been arrested. son-in-law of wealthy gop donor adelson arranged the purchase of "laefss vegas review-journal." hoverboards, a problem apparently linked to them catching fire apparently linked to the overheated lithium batteries. several major airlines have also banned the toys. a fugitive task force is
searching for a texas teenager who gained national attention. we have reported on this case of ethan couch who killed four people while driving drunk but he only got probation. his defense team claimed that he was raised with affluenza and that is a controversial psychological condition that is affecting wealthy young people. omar villafranca is outside of the courthouse in ft. worth and shows us why the teen is in trouble again. omar, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. exactly two weeks ago, ethan couch checked in with his probation officer, but no one has heard from him or his mother since. many believe his disappearance has to do with the posting of an online video a few weeks ago that prompted an investigation by the tarrant county district attorney. this is the video that may have reignited ethan couch's legal trouble. the six-second clip tweeted at the tarrant county's attorney's office apparently this month appears to show the 18-year-old cheering during a drinking game
and they believe that violated his probation and now ethan and his mother are on the run. >> when i saw the video the first thing that crossed my mind this is a good chance he will get locked up if he doesn't run. >> reporter: dee anderson is the tarrant county sheriff. does this surprise you? >> not at all. i said two years ago, this was going to happen. one of those times you hate to say i told you so, but i told you so. >> we need an ambulance. >> reporter: in 2013 when couch was 16, he killed four people and paralyzed a passenger in the drunk driving accident and several of the victims were helping the stranded driver. as part of a controversial defense, couch's attorney argued that his client suffered from affluenza. a wealthy privilege upbringing that they said led to his irresponsible actions. couch was sentenced to ten years probation but no jail time. >> he hasn't learned his lesson. he won't rehabilitate. he won't take it seriously. he never showed one ounce of remorse for killing four innocent people. >> reporter: on wednesday with
the group mothers against drunk driving also expressed their frustration. ethan couch appears to show blatant disregard for the law, they wrote. couch's attorney confirmed the disappearance to cbs news saying it would not be appropriate for us to publicly discuss this matter further at this time. >> i think he needs to be locked up, i think he needs to be put into the adult prison system for the first time in his life and let's hold him accountable for what he did. >> reporter: in november the d.a.'s office requested that couch's probation be moved over to an adult court but that has not happened yet. if he is arrested now, he could still only be punished in a juvenile court. >> thank you omar. to donald trump's call to block isis from the internet. the presidential front-runner is facing skepticism and ridicule from critics in both the political and digital world this morning. but donald trump is defending his plan. here is what ed in tuesday night's debate in las vegas.
>> but we should be using our brilliant people our most brilliant minds to figure a way that isis cannot use the internet. >> let me follow-up, mr. trump. so are you open to closing parts of the internet? >> i would certainly be open to closing areas where we are at war with somebody. i sure as hell don't want to let people that want to kill us and kill our nation use our internet. yes, sir, i am. >> cbs news contributor nicholas thompson is the editor of "the new yorker." is this a crazy idea and is it even possible? >> is it even possible? it's actually more possible than some people are saying. the internet is a set of wires, cables, satellite connections. you could go in and cut down the wires and knock down the cell taurs towers and get rid of the satellite dishes and do a lot of what trump is staying but wouldn't stop isis recruiting
because a lot of it happens outside of syria. if you wanted to wall that part of syria and iraq off from the internet a lot you can do. >> so it's not a crazy idea? >> it's not a crazy idea tech technologically technologically. what works is in oppressed areas you give them more information, right? if you shut down the internet in, say, northern syria, you may shut it down and make it harder for isis to communicate but you don't totally stop them because they can smuggle out -- and from saudi arabia. you hurt the communication ability from the kurds and raqqa reports to the world the horrible things isis is doing. if you want to counter isis cutting off the internet isn't the right way to do it in my view but not technologically totally insane. >> it's interesting to hear trump say this. it has been done before. it was used of course in the arab spring after 2011 in egypt. it's used in china and burma and
turkey regularly shuts down twitter so there are ways other than bombing cell towers this can be done correct? >> absolutely. isis has done that too, shutting down internet access that people they believe are challenging it and making harder for people to get their information online antiand count them. -- not the democratic one. >> is it possible the internet is good for us that they are using the internet so we can somehow try to follow them even though they use encrypted apps? >> trump said we need to counter them. what you hope is they are online and we are our smartest and best minds following them and following their propaganda. >> nick thompson, interesting. thank you so much. you don't have to be a terrorist to face the wrath of china for online postings. ahead, how a different kind of credit score could be used to silence critics of the ruling communist party. if you're heading out the door set your dvr so you can

♪ don't believe me just watch ♪ good morning. it is thursday, december 17th, 2015. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead, including a look back at the the year. we will revisit the big vors we covered and some of our favorite moments of 2015. first, here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> we had to discuss the topic of his e-mail account. >> i should have minding my ps and q he's. ru>> dg ceo has been arrested. >> security fraud case and it's just developing as we speak. freddie gray's familyal cled for calm after the jury decided it was unable to come up with a verdict. trump is still riding high, despite some vulgarity on the campaign trial. >> hillary clinton is a disaster. she wakes up in the morning, i
will not say that she puts on her pantsuit because that is what she does. i will not say it. >> two weeks ago, ethan couch checked in with his probation officer but no one has heard from him or his mother since. >> it's incredible that these few paragraphs that y gotouo int so much trouble. china's government is testing a new social credit score system. >> another republican debate. and i'm tired, because i was up late watching the whole thing. and definitely not at the cbs christmas parts doing jell-o shots out of charlie rose's naval with the"the two broke" girls. >> i'm charlie rose with norah o'donnell -- >> i like the entry of that. jell-o shots out of your navalel. >> i was ignoring that. we begin with defense
secretary of state ash carter who admits he used his personal e-mail account for some government work. the controversy came today as carter arrived inner erbil, iraq. >> reporter: why did you continue to use your personal account after your government account? >> this is a mistake and entirely my mistake. as secretary of defense, i use e-mail very little and never for classified information. but what i did, was that i shouldn't have been doing, until a few months ago, was i occasionally used my iphone to send administrative messages no classified information, and backed up in records, but to my immediately staff. and even that i shouldn't have been doing. when with i realized that i stopped. >> reporter: had you continued using that personal account,
even after the scandal or controversy about hillary clinton came up? >> well, when you're in my position and particularly that environment, it's more reason why i should be minding all of my ps and qs here and i wasn't. that's my fault. >> carter discussed ways to accelerate the defeat of isis. charges filed today against the man who bought the assault rifles used in the san bernardino massacre. the criminal charges against enrique marques has been expected. he is a former friend and neighbor of farook. the fbi says farook and malik were inspired by isis but no evidence so far that any outside group directed the attack that killed 14 people two weeks ago. the white says president obama will meet with the relatives in san bernardino on friday. >> the fight for holiday shoppers doors opened at 7:00 a.m. today and kohl's is not closing for listen to this number, 170 straight hours right
through to 6:00 on christmas eve. lee gallagher is the assistant editor of "fortune" and here to tell you how the marathon strategy could pay off. she joins us at the table. they are saying it's an added convenience they are offering to shoppers but what is the strategy? who is shopping at 3:00 a.m.? >> probably not that many but i would do anything to avoid the crowds. what is happening here is this company and most retailers are doing anything they can to compete with the threat from online retail which this year is bigger than it has ever been. so this is a way, what can brick and mortar stores offer? when it comes to the crunch time and deadline they are right nearby. so if you missed a shipping deadline you can go in. we all have deadlines and shopping and pressure. if you can after dinner or after the kids are in bed or get extra time out to do the holiday shopping it's an advantage other stores don't have. will everyone storm the store at midnight? i don't know. but it's just yet another tool
in this endless effort by retailers to try to compete with online retail and all of the other things that are happening in retail. >> what do you think the downside could be? >> it's expensive to staff stores 24 hours a day like that is a huge cost, obviously. also, you lose the time to sort of restock and clean up the stores. i'm sure they will be doing some of that in the slower hours, but a couple of years ago, walmart actually at some of its 24-hour stores decided to close in a few hours overnight so they could brush up the stores a little bit. i think that is one downside. >> is this a losing battle for brick and mortar? eventually their percentage of revenue will simply decline and decline and decline? >> well, it's definitely a tough time. i interviewed george zimmer this week the former ceo of men's warehouse. he said he is so happy he's not in the brick and mortar business any more. he is going online. what a lot of conventional retailers are doing is what is called omni channel.
that is your website is very seamless but you can order online and pick up in the store and order from your phone and seamlessly integrating all of these things. what will happen to these square foots we have in retail real estate is a good question in the long term. >> what about walmart? >> they are invest in this a year and it is working and they are seeing some benefits and they have -- doug mick milan is turning that strategy around and everybody is grappling with the weather this year which is killing them. so it's not easy right now. >> listen. last year, they stayed open a hundred hours before so -- >> they did. obviously, it worked. >> it worked. it's paying off. >> landscape is changing. thank you, lee, and happy holidays. nice to see you. this morning we are looking at at the biggest moments of the year on cbs. they include who kept everyone guessing. is it that you think you couldn't win or that you didn't want to run? >> couldn't win.
the challenges facing the country never stop. so neither does the u.s. army. we train. adapt. and get smarter. every soldier. every unit. every day. not to keep up with change; but to drive it. nobody knows what problems tomorrow will bring. but we do know who will solve them. i'm phil mickelson, pro golfer. my psoriatic arthritis caused joint pain. just like my moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis. and i was worried about joint damage. my doctor said joint pain from ra can be a sign of existing joint damage that could only get worse. he prescribed enbrel to help relieve pain and help stop further damage. enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections, tuberculosis lymphoma, other cancers, nervous system
and blood disorders and allergic reactions have occurred. tell your doctor if you've been someplace where fungal infections are common, or if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if you have persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. joint pain and damage... can go side by side. ask how enbrel can help relieve joint pain and help stop joint damage. enbrel, the number one rheumatologist-prescribed biologic. i am your father. this week at toys"r"us get 30% off this kylo ren, x-wing and the lengendary yoda. toys"r"us. awwwesome!
♪ morning rounds you hope for early detection of ovarian. one of the largest studies is coming out this morning. a simple blood test combined with an ultrasound reduce the disease by 20%. our david agus is in los angeles. david, good morning. >> good morning. >> reporter: do you think this study is a very big deal?
>> no question about it. 200,000 women and three groups one had a blood test that used an al go rhythm to look at this marker called ca-125 and followed by an you will extra sound was normal. the second got you will extra sound and the third had nothing. when you take out the women with ovarian skaerns when they had this study a 20% reduction. it presents late and if there were implimted in the united states we would save 3,500 lives per year. >> what is the breakdown in terms of the test? >> well, we used this test and several other studies to try to identify ovarian cancer. in this study, though, they didn't just look at the absolute number. they looked at the change in the number with an al go rhythm.
because of the size and study and length -- >> when you get the news of ovarian cancer, such devastating news. >> it presents later where it is in the body. by the time their symptoms it's a big cancer and it's too hard to actually cure. so the death rate of this cancer is pretty high with only about 45% of people living five years after diagnosis. so this is one. this is the first study ever to show that early detection saves lives, so it's a pretty important finding in ovarian kansas city cancer. that is the question, early detection. should women be asking their doctors for these tests now? >> that's a key question is that this study is important, but it was one piece of the puzzle. there's some statistically reasons why this may not be definitive and it may take a year or two to really make this definitive. so it's going to be a debate do
we implement it now? because we can save lives potentially and the risk is there. but it's low. if you do three surgeries, one of the women will have ovarian cancer, so there is still a false slr positive risk. you can go through surgery and potentially not need it. this is the beginning of it but, hopefully, this will actually mark what -- in the cancer world what we believe in which is really prevention and early detection because that is going to make the impact im. >> quickly. an age to start worry about this? >> cancer goes up as you get older. we know and heard about people with ovarian cancer at a young age but most of them happen in the mid-60s so post menopausal. >> a super bowl champion becomes a hero off the field after his old high school faced disaster. see how he brought students golden inspiration for the future. that's ahead on "cbs this morning." announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by
